WOW!! What an awesome deal on an AMD XP 2800+ Tags: CPUs World Of Warcraft AMD Motherboards Windows XP Last response: June 10, 2004 1:57 AM in CPUs Share jflongo June 6, 2004 8:01:27 PM Well don't know if you have a Fry's Computer Store in your area. Last week they had an awesome combo deal on a AMD XP 2800+ RETAIL bundled with a cheapo ECS Elitegroup K7VTA3 V8 Motherboard. All this for only $99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This processor alone is $130 at Fry's and $121 online at newegg.com. So I ordered a new motherboard and memory to use with this, then I will take my old Athlon XP 1600+ and memory and try it in the cheapo motherboard for my wife. They have a similar deal this weekend for an AMD XP 2500+ Retail bundled with a mother board. I think it's around $60 - $70, so STILL CHEAPER THAN THE PROCESSOR ALONE!! I couldn't find the deal last week or this week online, looking at their current ad, but was there when I went into the store and look at their ad. here is fry's online http://www.outpost.com/ I think newegg.com is cheaper than them for most things online, but instore sometimes you get a rockin' deal. <i> If your computer is your best friend, maybe you should rethink your life.</i> :wink: More about : wow awesome deal amd 2800 Zeekfu June 6, 2004 10:36:38 PM wow, that is a killer deal. I have never even heard of Fry's though. I don't see the deal on line either (just like you said). Must be a special store promo deal. gobeavers June 7, 2004 12:29:36 AM Fry's is western US electronics store. They have great specials, but other than the specials, I find the prices aren't that great. The specials more than make up for it though...

If you go to outpost.com they list the drive for $159. Personally I hate frys and wouldn't recommend buying anything there but if you can cash in on one of their deals then by all means go ahead. <font color=blue>________________________</font color=blue> <font color=red>You are all going to go to Hell! jflongo June 7, 2004 2:35:50 PM Quite honestly I don't like buying stuff at fry's alot. They use 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper for receipts and returns, a ton of them for starters. They probably kill a forest every day. But some times they have KILLER deals, so that's when i buy from them. <i> If your computer is your best friend, maybe you should rethink your life.</i> :wink: dhlucke June 10, 2004 12:19:34 AM I went to Frys and they didn't honor it. They claimed that it expired already. According to them they run 2 day ads. It's the last time I go there. I've never had them honor anything, have anything I want in stock, or give me a hint of decent customer service. <font color=blue>________________________</font color=blue> <font color=red>You are all going to go to Hell! jflongo June 10, 2004 12:56:12 AM When did you go? I think their ads run from Thursday - Tuesday, but not on Wednesday. Odd, but I think that's the case. <i> If your computer is your best friend, maybe you should rethink your life.</i> :wink: dhlucke June 10, 2004 1:57:27 AM I went today. Of course. I cut the ad out 2 days ago. I'm sick of the aggravation. I've never had success there. I'm sticking to newegg. I've tried buying a hard drive, a 22" monitor, arctic silver, a video card, a controller card, an s-video cable, a cable splitter, and a temp monitor there. Nothing has worked out. I'm done with the idiots that work there. <font color=blue>________________________</font color=blue> <font color=red>You are all going to go to Hell! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
